There are six different elements in Ginormo Sword: fire, water, wind, earth, light, and dark. Three of the elements have opposing relationships with the other three: fire and water are opposites, and so are wind and earth, as well as light and dark.

Every enemy in the game (except the ones in the Orc family) is aligned with a particular element, and all enemies in the same family have the same element. Some enemies also have a weakness to a specific element, usually the opposite element that they're aligned with.

Each of the six elements has a corresponding jewel that can be used to enchant weapons and armor with that element.
